It seems it was a descent sized pharmacy. That bottle may be more multi use label differentiates contents.
ROBBYBOBBY64.
I suspect they were always the same product because the company existed for many years and had all sorts of different variations in embossing plus at least two different factories, but the size of the bottles was always exactly the same. If they had multiple products I would imagine they would have smaller bottles as well.

It was on the way home from work and with rain coming I stopped to see what I could find before its underwater again.
I found three more snuff jars, I have yesterday's in the group too.
They have from 1 to 4 dots on the bottom with one slightly smaller showing a different mark. All have seams to the top.
Picked up a salad dressing bottle that was made by Ball.
A whiskey decanter top?
And a few old clear bottles. I'm guessing the one I have a close up of is the oldest. Has several air bubbles and seams that stop short of the top.
Picked up a couple more, but they're really mud packed.
Thanks for the comments, they definitely help with the id.
One of my boys is a CNP and wants the medical related ones for his office.

Out with the pups this morning and found an old canning jar dump. These were the ones not broken.
Found a few Knox jars and bicentennial ones. I'll actually use these after cleaning up for canning or honey.
I did find a small blue bottle. It had a tiny bit of label, but no idea what it was used for.
There's still one third of whatever it is in it.

A few from yesterday. Several small bottles with screw tops.
Two Dyanshine bottles,
A green Owen's Illinois pill bottle,
and a ball jar with no underscore.
I have several of these that are blue, but this one is clear with bubbles in the glass.
These are the first ones I've ever actually dug for.

Part of yesterday's finds.
Purex bottles from the 40's or 50's?
Several small lysol bottles, one is a cork top.
Dr Pepper and Coke bottles. These have Blytheville Ark on the base so I'm guessing they were made here.
Bail top Atlas and Ball quart jars, sans bail and top.
Midwest Dairy Products milk jar.
Dr Caldwell's Monticello IL, has a green tint.
Mason's Old Fashioned Root Beer.
Small listerine bottles, one cork one threaded.
Many cork and threaded medicine bottles.
Sloan's Liniment.
White's Cream Vermifuge, this was human worm medicine.
Bon Oil olive oil bottle, has a green tint.
Cheramy perfume, still has the top.
And a Cater's ink well.
I've still got a few in the truck to clean, but I think they're mostly more medicine bottles.
